Yoga Shred is a cross-training combination of yoga and HIIT (high intensity interval training). You'll experience a full body, cardio workout that takes vinyasa yoga as a starting point.
Yoga Shred will improve core strength through flowing sequences and will burn fat through high intensity cardio exercises.
Benefits of Yoga Shred
HIIT targets fast-twitch muscle fibers that yoga does not. Yoga works on mostly slow-twitch fibers, which build stamina and endurance for longer holding.
HIIT optimizes your cardio capacity, or your ability to process oxygen, better than anything else. Cardio optimization is the foundation of all health. So yogis should love this addition to their holistic fitness.
Fast-twitch muscle fibers are what lift, tighten, define and tone your body, help you get stronger for movement without injury. Fast twitch is what we do a lot of in life, so we need to be strong in that way, too. Shreds: define, tighten, lift and sculpt muscles.
Yoga Shred® as the style and “Yoga Shreds: or “Shreds” as single moves, are created to be safer and better- aligned versions of regular HIIT forms. Even our Yoga Shred® Burpees offer less impact on the shoulders, knees and back!
Yoga Shreds can be done by anyone, but a bonus is that they super-strengthen yoga students for their poses. They can help
break through strength plateaus on the mat. Your students (and you!) will feel like a rockstar when you get on the mat.
Yoga Shreds create stronger bones through mindful impact. It’s become epidemic in yoga classes not to create impact, but
without it, joints and bones become brittle.
Yoga Shred® moves are Sadie Nardini’s signature creations. Each separate type of move (Side Plank Curls, Fists of Fire Lunges, etc...) are called a “Yoga Shred" or a “Shred”. Shreds are done in blocks of 20 seconds activity / 10 seconds rest, for up to 8 rounds.
Can raise your metabolism up to 15% and burn calories.
Improve balance, flexibility, better alignment and build endurance.
